2019 Grammy Nominations List Is Here, Nicki Minaj And Chris Brown Didn't Make The Cut, But Cardi B, Drake and Kendrick Lamar Did

The 2019 Grammy Awards nominations list is here!

First off, we want to say congratulations to music producer and recording artist from Delaware SAP for his part in Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap album that is Nominated for Best Rap Album!

Surprisingly, neither Chris Brown or Nicki Minaj were nominated for Grammy's this year.  In Chris Brown's his album, Heartbreak On A Full Moon was released in October 2017. The album missed the deadline to be nominated in the 2018 Grammy Awards Show. His 45-track album had high reviews but with all of the music that has came out this year, timing may be the main reason Brown's project did not receive a Grammy nomination. Nicki Minaj released her Queen album in August but she did not pick up any nominations this year. Some fans believe that Chris and Nicki were snubbed.

Cardi B, Drake and Kendrick Lamar are dominating nominations right now. The 61st Grammy Awards Show air Sunday Feb. 10 on CBS.
